I am really keen to hear about your experiences... It's pretty much a fact that, from a pax point of view, TK is one of the best airlines in the world...
Happy to share as in general I enjoyed my experience on TK
but when compared to other airlines I have flown like SQ
, I wouldn't put UA
in "one of the best" categories...
In September 2009 I flew ORD
miles in Y an had a great experience.
I also flew:
-BJV on Anadolu Jet
-ASR on TK
In general the domestic TK
flights were all great with food offered on every flight. (More food than I needed...)
Although I didn't fly in business, I don't think you can really call TK
's domestic business, business...that goes for most EU airlines as well but that is a topic for another thread.
The reservation process online was extremely clumsy and so I had to call to get the flights I wanted...they were very nice on the phone but I was left with an uncomfortable feeling that something wasn't right with my reservation.
The tickets on SunExpress and Anadolu Jet were sold by TK
and the on board experience was much the same...but the connection at SAW
was horrible. The connection was offered on the website and confirmed when I spoke to reservations on the phone but we had to collect our bags in SAW
and recheck them. Our first flight was delayed so we were afraid we would miss our connection so I sent my wife ahead to the gate while I waited for the bags. I don't think we were able to find monitors or maybe the flight wasn't shown on the monitors so we had to ask which gate...but we were both sent to different gates...and then we independently discovered that we were both at the wrong gate and trying to run around the airport to find each other, no one seemed to know anything...it was a very frustrating experience...we ended up making our flight only because it was very delayed also...
